Videocart-12: Baseball is a baseball videogame released by Fairchild for the Fairchild Channel F in 1977. The first console baseball game featured an innovative pitching interface that would become a cornerstone for future titles based on the sport. Twisting the controllers steers the pitch, while pushing forward or pulling back varies its speed. If a batter manages to hit the pitch, four fielders can be moved to the left or right to make an out. Strikeouts, walks, and getting hit by the pitch are all possible. The intricacies of the batter/pitcher contest made this game, much like real baseball, a game that came down to pitching.
